1:43 am
the is a lab oh da's office can hang on him now is possession of explosives and making a destructive device. >> so his presence in the home alone is not sufficient to bring charges of a possible homocide? >> that's correct. >> cbs5 has learned the da's case is stalled because the bodies were so badly decomposed, extensive forensic testing is needed, so for now righten hawes walked and his attorney is already trying to prove reasonable doubt. >> i can only speculate. there's an obvious suspect in this case and i can only speculate that he put the bodies there. >> reporter: attorney leslie prince says efren valdemoro is the suspect in four murders, since he is accused of stealing her escalade it stands to reason he killed her and her best friend carol smart. >> some say that that's a kind of a convenience, you now have a suspect who is dead. >> all i know is they have already done an autopsy on this
1:44 am
case and they have not charged my client with a homocide. >> reporter: prince has even accused valdemoro for the cash of explosives they are taking from his home and storage unit. >> there is something strange about having a large number of explosives in your home and a storage unit. >> first of all i don't know that there was any evidence that he had something in his storage unit. i heard valdemoro had something in his storage unit. >> reporter: despite statements on the discovery of uranium at righten hawes' home prince denies the charge. but for the first time she reveals righten hawes allegedly has an alibi for the murders. >> they can confirm that there were no dead bodies in the house on that day. >> reporter: in fairfield, robert liles, cbs5. police and volunteers spent a sixth day searching a pittsburgh landfill for the missing son of one of the victims. 35-year-old frederick solace hasn't been seen since before his father was found dead a

week and a half ago. police believe the suspect in the father's death, the late efren valdemoro, may have put him in the dump. police swooped in and busted a big marijuana growing operation near san ramon, it was in a large remote area, police and schiff deputies found 1800 pot plants growing there. they arrested a pittsburgh manna they say was living there. another suspect got away happen. investigatorsest that the marijuana is worth a quarter million dollars. and take a food look at this guy. sunnyvale police calm hima person of interest in as many as 15 arson fires since may. most of the fires have involved dumpsters and piles of trash on the street. but there are also a few cases of car fires, including one where firefighters found someone inside. nine fires, alone, happened one morning last week. all them happened between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m.

them just go down to the department of elections where they are given one. most, but not all. eric smith just got a democratic party endorsement for supervisor in district 10. as is is the custom in this city which is 1/3 asian the majority of which is chinese he has chosen a chinese name to go on the ballot next to his english name. it is a foe nettic translation. the chinese characters sound as close to eric smith as possible. some of his friends were encouraging him to go a different direction, calling him something chinese. >> i thought something kingly or nor dick. >> the superior court judge has chosen a chinese name that contains the chinese name of lee as well as fair and just. >> it means fair, just, and with the surname lee which is a very common chinese name which i'm told phonetically sounds
1:49 am
like michael nava, so our decision was to go for something that sounded like my name but also conveyed something about the qualities that people would want in a judge. >> umm -- legally i guess it's okay, but ethically, probably not. i don't think i would do it. >> reporter: it is apparently legal and commonplace. state senator leland yee introduced a bill calling the practice deceptive. he said if you didn't already have a chinese name his bill would say you could not make one up. >> it would be a trans lit ration, a foe nettic translation, not some characters that somehow suggest some good quality so you can gain an advantage or get some votes. >> reporter: fair and just. if i'm cynical i'm going for a minute you changed your name to try to get them to vote for you. >> i look at it this way. it does double duty as my slogan and my name and i don't think it is misleading in that
1:50 am
sense. >> reporter: i want to make this point clear. what mr. nava is doing appears to be perfectly legal. i mentioned senator yee's bill, the governor vetoed that, so it never came to fruition. the bottom line here, sit is a common practice that will probably continue to go on for some time. reporting live in san francisco, joe vasquez, cbs5. hope so, because it's definitely something to say, eh. >> helping drivers get the picture. coming up next, the optic will illusion meant to make drivers slow down. a call to reflect during the commute. what's behind the thought- provoking questions posed to bay area drivers. symptoms and you think you've got moves better that in? huh. the study that had women determining the difference between a good and bad dancer. i think they were just trying to dance in the rain because we had a few sprinkles
